Transfiguration of the Lord Sunday (March 3 this year) marks the end of the season of Epiphany, and the transition to the season of Lent. As we have been exploring over the last two months, an epiphany is “a manifestation” or a “revelation” of a deeper meaning or a hidden truth, about one’s life, about God, or about the universe. The transfiguration story, recorded in all three of the synoptic gospels, is an EPIPHANY to three of Jesus’ disciples, and through them to us, of the hidden truth, or deeper meaning, of Jesus, — who and what he really is. The disciples see Jesus’ true glory and hear the voice of God telling them: “This is my Son, my Chosen. Listen to him!” May we too see his glory, and heed his teachings.
